The best data - based overview of EU politics


VoteWatch Europe post-Strasbourg plenary session debriefing (19.04.2013 - Brussels Press Club, 95 Rue Froissart, 1040 Brussels)


VoteWatch Europe, the independent organisation which tracks the voting records of Members of the European Parliament and of the Council of Ministers, is pleased to invite you to its post-Strasbourg plenary session debriefing.
The briefing will take place this Friday 19 April from 10.00 to 11.00 at the Brussels Press Club, 95 Rue Froissart, 1040 Brussels. 
Votes to be analysed include:
  • -Banking reform: votes on bonus caps, capital and loans
  • -ETS: Proposed freeze on auctions of a portion of CO2 emission quotas
  • -2011 discharge of several EU agencies and bodies
  • -Trade and development
These votes can and will be analysed only if they are held by roll call. Except in the case of final votes on legislative files, votes only take place by roll call at the request of a political group or group of MEPs.

Doru Frantescu, VoteWatch Europe policy director, will present an analysis of the outcome of key votes being held in Strasbourg this week. He will show which coalitions of MEPs, national delegations and political groups were instrumental in passing - or blocking (elements of) these proposals, and how this relates to earlier votes on the same or similar topics. Michiel van Hulten, VoteWatch Europe managing director, will chair the event.
